Question about Samsung SyncMaster 245BW Monitor

Monitor no longer works - all black

Came back from vacation and my monitor no longer works. Power seems to work but I can't see anything on the screen. tried the menu buttons, DVI input, and VGA input - nada - all black. It's about three years old so I'm assuming it may have burned out. Is there a reset option besides powering on/off?

    Hey Doc - I tried two different laptops. One using DVI and the other using a VGA cable. They both previously worked, so, I can't imagine they both crapped out at the same time.

    Looks like my reply didn't go through... I've test two different laptops with different connections. I checked my DVI cabling from one laptop and VGA from another. Neither of them work when they previously had no problems.

    Try and check the VGA Cabling and check your VGA card

When you say "power seems to work", what does that mean ?
Does the power button comes on blue and then go orange ?

There is no reset button on lcd monitors, check power cable first, if the blue pilot led lights but no picture, you might need to bring the unit to the shop for servicing..

Blue power button flashing with blank screen


This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's the problem. You can confirm that it's the monitor and not your computer or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try.

If it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old it is, you may find it better to just replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Still having trouble with EMachines T3882


I feel your pain. I finally moved my pc to a room with no windows! But seriously, try a different monitor first. See if you can borrow someone's to just try it before you do anything else. If that borrowed monitor works fine, then you know what the problem is. (Which I believe is the problem.) By the way, what started all of your problems?

LCD screen goes black repeatedly


Have you checked the light on your power supply? My monitor will go black and I noticed the light on my AC power supply was off. It was very hot so I unplugged it and let it cool down. When I plugged it back in my monitor worked fine until the power supply started to over heat again.
